Massage Therapy schools prepare students for a career in massage. Some schools teach students several different types of massage therapy and others will focus on a particular type of massage for their curriculum. Program durations vary by school and the variety of subject material taught. While many masseuse schools teach traditional massage, others will combine or specialize in Swedish massage, craniosacral therapy, deep tissue massage, shiatsu, and reflexology massage instruction. Students are ready to enter the field of massage upon graduation and begin their working career. Some schools offer job placement to graduates and alumni. Others might have connections to certain travel related industries and are adept at placing students. It is strongly recommended that prospective students request information from several different massage therapy schools in order to find the program that teaches the type of massage they want to learn and has the right job placement program. Some schools may be able to provide financial aid to help students become massage therapists.
